An examination of 16 bank voles from Poland (Pomerania) revealed the presence of two species of the family Demodecidae (Acari, Prostigmata), specific to the host. Demodex buccalis Bukva, Vitovec et Vlcek, 1985 was noted only in one bank vole, where 18 specimens were found: the prevalence of infestation being 6.3%. D. glareoli Hirst, 1919 was observed in 75% of the examined bank voles, in which were on average 5.1 specimens. Additionally, mites of the both species exhibited topical specificity… Expand
The Biodiversity of Demodecid Mites (Acariformes: Prostigmata), Specific Parasites of Mammals with a Global Checklist and a New Finding for Demodex sciurinus
TLDR
The present paper lists all formally-described valid species of demodecid mites, together with other functioning specific names, verified and with comments on their status, significant for correct species identification and demodemodecosis diagnostics. Expand
A new species of the genus Demodex Owen, 1843 (Acari: Demodecidae) from the ear canals of the house mouse Mus musculus L. (Rodentia: Muridae)
A new species Demodex conicus n. sp. is described based on adult and juvenile stages from the ear canals of the house mouse Mus musculus L. in Poland. The new species is most similar to D.Expand
A new species and new host record of Demodecidae (Acariformes: Prostigmata) associated with the bandicoot rat (Rodentia: Muridae) from Lao PDR with data on parasitism and a checklist of the demodecid mites of rodents
Abstract A new species, Demodex bandicotae sp. nov. (Acariformes: Demodecidae), is described based on adult stages from the hairy skin of the greater bandicoot rat Bandicota indica (Bechstein, 1800),Expand
A new genus and species of demodecid mites from the tongue of a house mouse Mus musculus: description of adult and immature stages with data on parasitism
TLDR
A new genus and species of the parasitic mite based on adult and immature stages from the house mouse Glossicodex musculi is proposed and described. Expand
Characterization of Demodex musculi Infestation, Associated Comorbidities, and Topographic Distribution in a Mouse Strain with Defective Adaptive Immunity.
TLDR
It is hypothesize that the Rag1-null component of the genotype makes TRP1/TCR mice susceptible to various opportunistic infestations and infections, including Demodex mites, P. pneumotropica, and C. bovis, and Rag 1-null mice may serve as a useful model to study human and canine demodecosis. Expand
DISEASE AND PATHOLOGICAL CONDITIONS OF AN ENDANGERED RODENT, MICROTUS CALIFORNICUS SCIRPENSIS, IN A CAPTIVE-REARING FACILITY AND IN THE WILD
TLDR
This survey of species-specific diseases and pathogens was possible because the established health surveillance program allowed for monitoring of voles throughout the duration of their natural life spans in captivity. Expand

New data on distribution of Demodex huttereri Mertens, Lukoschus et Nutting, 1983 and topical specificity and topography of demodectic mites in striped field mouse Apodemus agrarius
TLDR
In striped field mouse, demodectic mites demonstrate significant topographical preferences that are conditioned not only by tissue/topical specificity, but also by transmission ways between hosts. Expand
Demodex sp. infesting tongue, esophagus, and oral cavity of Onychomys leucogaster, the grasshopper mouse.
TLDR
The discovery of demodicids in the tongue and oral epithelium of Onychomys leucogaster and the absence of sebaceous glands adjacent to the mites in the anterior digestive tract indicates that sebum is not an essential nutritive source in this mite species. Expand
Parasite fauna of the bank vole (Clethrionomys glareolus) in an urban region of Germany: reservoir host of zoonotic metazoan parasites?
TLDR
In the area investigated, the bank voles harbored no zoonotic parasites, and therefore, they play not a role as potential reservoir host for these parasite species. Expand

TLDR
Until now, Demodex rosus has been only recorded in the Czech Republic; however, as many as 81 specimens have been observed in 7 yellow-necked field mice collected from Gdansk Pomerania, Poland, the first observation of that species in Poland. Expand
New for the fauna of Poland species of Psorergates spp. with the data of occurrence of mites from Psorergatidae family (Acari, Prostigmata) in native mammals.
TLDR
The paper presents the list of species observed so far in Poland taking into consideration their hosts--currently the Psorergatidae fauna in Poland includes 10 species noted in eleven mammals species among rodents, bats and insectivores. Expand
